    Default Back in the saddle.

    It has been a long time since I have been fishing. My sister passed away 2 weeks before Christmas, and for all of January and up until last week I had upper respiratory problems but am good to go now.....I hope. I went to a trout river today. Everyone else was fishing for trout and I was after crappie......they all thought I was nuts. Loaded the boat with 30 crappie 11-13 inches. All fish caught on a ThunderHawk Dancer either in Midnight Blue or Pearl/Purple with a Micro fry 1/8 ounce jig head using my Major craft FineTail Banshee Area Trout Rod 6' 7" with SOS 2# test line and 2# test fluro leader. Visibility was 8 feet....really clear water. The fish came out of 21-25 feet of water on the bottom.....if you were not tapping rocks on the retrieve you were not catching fish. Water temp was 49 degrees....an absolute beautiful day. Going to try for Spotted bass tomorrow....life is good.

    Sorry for your loss. I've lost Mom, Dad, Sister and a Brother. The positive thing is that they never leave you, mine visit me all the time in different ways.

    Glad you're back to doing what you love. And if that's your boat, I'm jealous. Sweet little rig.
